BDF to SFD converter


This is a BDF to SFD converter, allowing to vectorize bitmap fonts. It works by converting each pixel of a glyph to a polygon, which produces large and unoptimized SFD files that should be post-processed using FontForge.

It was originally created to generate OpenType versions of Spleen, and is released in the hope it can be useful to convert other fonts as well. Please be aware that it works best on fonts proportional to 8x16. Other sizes will work but the aspect ratio will not be preserved. There is currently little interest in addressing the issue.
